TBR Pile: November 2016

Eating fresh breakfast and reading book in morning

Because I spent the second half of October searching for books to recommend in Country Woman magazine, I got a little derailed in my scheduled reading. I debated whether to even publish a TBR pile for November. But I decided to go for it because I have a handful of books I know I *need* to read this month.

I finished 14 books in October, including 3 re-listens and 1 novella. Only 3 were books I planned to read in October. I’ll get to some of the others soon I hope, and I DNFed The Mothers.

My November TBR Pile

Bad Blood by Jennifer Lynn BarnesBad Blood (The Naturals #4) by Jennifer Lynn Barnes

How I got it: I pre-ordered it from Amazon, and it arrived on Tuesday.

Why I got it: I love this series, and I knew my library wouldn’t be getting a copy right away. I will likely donate my copy after I finish reading it.


Starflight by Melissa Landers

How I got it: I borrowed it from the library.

Why I got it: It’s my YA Book Club selection for November. Sarah selected it because she was in the mood for something Sci-Fi.


We Have Always Lived in the Castle by Shirley Jackson

How I got it: I borrowed the audiobook from the library.

Why I got it: This book is discussed a lot in Holding Up the Universe, and I was super curious, so I reserved it from the library.


Home Field by Hannah GersenHome Field by Hannah Gersen

How I got it: I borrowed it from the library.

Why I got it: I came across this book while trying to find books for Country Woman magazine, and it mentions Friday Night Lights and My So-Called Life in the description, so, of course, I have to read it!

The Sun Is Also a Star by Nicola Yoon

The Sun Is Also a Star by Nicola Yoon

How I got it: I picked up an ARC at BEA before I even read Everything, Everything.

Why I got it: I’d read a lot of reviews of Everything, Everything, and now that I’ve read that book, I’m so glad I have this ARC.


The Guineveres by Sarah Domet

The Guineveres by Sarah Domet

How I got it: I borrowed it from the library.

Why I got it: I received a marketing email from the publisher about it, and I started reading the sample online, and I was hooked.


I could keep going, but I’m going to make myself stop. I’m not committing to reading anything else in November, but I’m sure I will. I’m just leaving room to change my mind this month.


What’s on your TBR pile for the month?

    1. I know, right? I hope you enjoy it. I just didn’t find it too be anything special. I didn’t really care all that much about the main character. I am giving my copy away because it’s kind of making me feel guilty that so many people loved it, and I couldn’t even finish it.

      Yes, Home Field sounds very interesting. I hope I can get to it before I have to return it to the library. I am struggling with physical books at the moment.

    1. Is Starflight a series? I didn’t even realize. Now I really hope I like it. I love series! 🙂 I hope and I both enjoy The Sun Is Also a Star. Thanks for reading. 🙂
